Environment

Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2

Hardware inventory settings can not be configured globally from ZCC.

Tying to add switches to the option "inventory-scanner-options" (in ZCC, under Configuration->ZDM Settings->Add->inventory->inventory-scanner-options, setting the value to: "
-braille -floppy -parallel")

ERROR: "One or more character is invalid".

Resolution

Additional Information

Doing it locally in the device itself does work. For instance:
# rug set inventory-scanner-options -braille,-floppy,-parallel
